Mrs. Kocjancic from Saint Marys PA is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Topping Off Our First Grade Classroom

My students need a variety of flexible seating choices and other organizational tools to help produce the most efficient classroom. We have also included STEM learning devices and other learning essentials!

My Students

I have 21 first grade students my my homeroom, with 5 additional students during reading, in a rural school district in PA. Our elementary school is considered a Title 1 school, which means that we have a high percentage of children from low income families. They come from various backgrounds, interests, and academic levels.

My students are eager to learn at their full potential and I want to give them that great opportunity by offering various learning methods and a unique and warm classroom design.

I hope to inspire all of my learners to be the best person they can be.

My Project

My classroom has begun using flexible seating and now we are ready to update our seating to more sturdy, long lasting choices. The bee bot robot, OSMO kit, and solar system model will help to build our STEM learning experiences. They will each provide a hands-on approach that my students truly enjoy learning by.

All of these items will help to produce a student directed and efficient classroom where students can learn at their best!

These items will be put to great use by an already amazing first grade class. The amount of learning and fun to be had with these items will go a very long way.
